Program Overview

The Kirkhof College of Nursing's fully online RN to BSN program features synchronous and asynchronous coursework and small class sizes, which provide individualized, meaningful engagement with professors and fellow students. Unlike correspondence courses, our faculty and academic advisors guide students through every step of the program, meeting the needs of students working full-time.

This program is ideal for students currently enrolled in or who have graduated from an associate degree in nursing program or registered nurses who have been working for any length of time. The enrolled student must be licensed as an RN in their state of residency before beginning 400-level courses.
